Knights Contract Tries To Outgore Splatterhouse

Illustration for article titled Knights Contract Tries To Outgore Splatterhouse

Namco Bandai's latest may look like a direct competitor to its own Splatterhouse, but the recently revealed Knights Contract only appears to overlap it in screen-covering gore. Its wholesome looking witches are nicely contrasted by its blood-spurting hideous freaks.

There's not much you need to know about the PS3 and Xbox 360 game that we haven't already told you about. Co-op action is the name of the game, with beast-slicing action and fancy witchcraft pairing up to stop a nasty this-or-that named Dr. Faust. I guess we didn't know it was going to be quite this gory, though.

You have plenty of time—Knights Contract is planned for a 2011 release in North America, something Namco Bandai made official today—to decide if these new screens look like something you want to play.

Dear Namco Bandai, this is not how you market a game to the west. It's like me assuming everyone in Japan likes big googly eyed ugly anime girls.

Gore + Violence + Foul Language only is going to appeal to the actual immature gamers who claim to be mature, this is not selling me on this game at all, sorry.
